About eDigitalResearch plc


What is it like to work for eDigitalResearch plc

My Manager
My Manager
There is a structured training programme in place for managers within eDigitalResearch. When people join as a Manager or if they are shortly going to be promoted, they will attend an internal management training course which focuses on managing people within the ‘eDR Way’. They will also attend an external one day management training course in London. For those who are promoted into the more senior management roles they attend a three day Leadership Trust course which enables them to understand and adjust their behaviours to realise the full potential of their team. Compressed into three days, this intense course is all about impact without forfeiting any of the core learnings developed at The Leadership Trust. It explores personal impact upon others and the organisational environment, and examines the impact of others and external events. Last but not least, it focuses on self-control and the impact individuals have on themselves.
Wellbeing
Wellbeing
eDigitalResearch plc’s offices are located in a tranquil and peaceful setting, with a fisherman’s lake and large garden right outside. They encourage all employees to take regular breaks to enjoy the fresh air and their surroundings and in the summer, they provide picnic benches and blankets so that employees can enjoy the warm weather. They also encourage employees to take regular breaks from their screens with activity days. Past events have included a Back to the Future day where staff could relax with pizza while watching the film. The ‘Canine division’ also provide some welcome breaks away from screens. They currently have 9 dogs residing in the office and employees are encouraged to take them for walks.
Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
The company has been supporting their local children’s hospice, Naomi House, for a number of years now, holding various events throughout the year to help raise funds. Every Christmas, instead of sending cards within the office, they ask employees to donate money to their Naomi House Christmas fund. Each year, their team of ‘eDR Bikers’ also dress up as Father Christmas and drive to the hospice to drop off all donations personally. Being a technology based organisation, they also support Jamie’s Computers, the computer recycling division of The Society of St James in Southampton. As well as recycling old computer equipment to those that need it most within the local community, the initiative also seeks to provide training and experience for hard to reach individuals with the aim to increase their employability. They also have a dedicated ‘eDigitalResearch Charity Team’ that organise internal events to raise funds for the local community.
